Arsenal has been strongly connected with a potential signing of Ilkay Gundogan from Manchester City during the upcoming summer transfer window. Bruno Fernandes, a prominent player for Manchester United, was extremely impressed by Gundogan’s performance in FA Cup final.

It is widely known that Arsenal’s main focus this summer is strengthening their central midfield position. While Declan Rice is their primary target, they are also in need of another player to complement him.

In FA Cup final at Wembley, featuring a Manchester derby, the focus was primarily on how Erling Haaland would challenge Manchester United’s defense. However, it was Ilkay Gundogan who emerged as the standout player.

Gundogan, who joined Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of £21 million in 2016 according to Sky Sports, has enjoyed a remarkable season. He has consistently excelled in every competition, and it was his exceptional brace that secured victory for the blue side of Manchester.

Gundogan wasted no time in making an impact, scoring a stunning goal just 12 seconds into the match to give Manchester City the lead. However, the most crucial goal came in the second half, solidifying their victory.

Gundogan’s two goals proved decisive as Manchester City emerged victorious with a 2-1 win over Manchester United in the final. Bruno Fernandes, an exceptional midfielder for the Red Devils, spoke highly of the Manchester City captain, acknowledging his outstanding performance.

He told BBC One: “We were too soft and gave up too much space for the first goal but it’s an amazing strike. If players are tighter then maybe they can stop it but it’s an amazing strike.

“He’s [Gundogan] an amazing player and one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.”

Recently, David Ornstein, in his report on The Athletic, disclosed that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has a strong desire to secure the signature of Ilkay Gundogan during the upcoming summer transfer window.

As Gundogan’s contract will expire in less than a month, he will become available on a free transfer in July. Considering his skills and abilities, he would be an excellent addition to any team, particularly Arsenal.

Arsenal is in need of a new midfielder to replace Granit Xhaka, and if they manage to acquire the services of Declan Rice alongside Gundogan, it could significantly strengthen their midfield. Such reinforcements would position Arsenal as strong contenders in the title race for the next season.

Gundogan himself stated after the game that no decision has been made regarding his future yet. It will be intriguing to see if Arsenal makes a move for him following the conclusion of the Champions League final next week.
